Visiting a La Senza press day puts my sleep and underwear wardrobe to absolute shame. Can I be the only one who has let things ‘slip’ in those departments? One turn around the beauties on display had me mentally chucking out all the old crap in both of those drawers and making a note to get myself down to my closest La Senza asap.
Autumn Winter 2011 presents an array of silken playsuits and Teddies; the likes of which we have already seen creeping into store in tea rose and peach prints already this season. Petrol blue, lilac, cream and dusty pink seems to be the palette du jour. I love a silky playsuit or nightdress, but they also have a fabulous selection of pyjamas and pyjama shorts – my favourite were pale blue pinstriped with a chunky pink ribbon tie.
Basque style bras with attached chiffon skirt detail were eye-catching and sure to hit the spot for a special occasion. But like always, when I am surrounded by this much gorgeous lingerie, I started to think ‘why do we need a special occasion to wear beautiful underwear?’ Luckily I kept this mentality for long enough to replace my nightwear drawer with a silk playsuit, some cotton shorts and some new underwear and I can highly recommend you do the same.
Paloma Faith range at La Senza
Look out for the special Paloma Faith range, in stores this Autumn Winter. Retro glam – of course – we loved the petrol blue wrap and side tie playsuit and balconette bra with high waist bottoms.
